The purpose of this program is to provide a vacation at a summer camp for a mentally challenged person(s) who otherwise could not afford the cost on their own.
In order to help as many special friends as possible, this is a one-time, per person opportunity.
Each region has a yearly maximum of $1,000, regardless the number of campers.
The Application to the Summer Camp Program form has to be completed in full, a parent or a person responsible for the applicant who can verify applicant’s funds must sign the application. The application is then proposed and signed by a Grand Commander and sent to their Supreme Director. It is the responsibility of the Supreme Director to contact the camp to verify the camper’s date of attendance, cost and sign the form. The original application is to be mailed to the Secretariat. Upon receipt, the Secretariat will verify if the application meets the requirements of the program and will forward it to the Summer Camp Program Committee for final approval.
